SECTION A. Description of project activity
A.1. Purpose and general description of project activity
>>
Inner Mongolia Hangjinqi Balagong 10MWp Solar Power Project (hereinafter referred to as the proposed
project) is located in the Balagong town, Hanggin Banner, Ordos City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous
Region, P.R. China. The proposed project is invested, developed and operated by Inner Mongolia Datang
International New Energy Co.,Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as the owner or the project owner).

The total installed capacity of the Project is 10MWp equipped with 8 sets of photovoltaic generation
systems with 1.26MWp. The Project will employ 37728 sets of polycrystalline silicon cell module, each
of which has an output rate of 280W and adopt fixed array installation mode, the Project will also
construct distribution room, inverter room, control room, pump room and office building etc. It is
estimated that annual utilization hours at equivalent peak-load is 1,558 hours and annual average net
electricity delivered to the grid is about 15,580MWh in 25 years operational lifetime of the Project.
Electricity generated by the Project will be inverted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC)
by inverter, then boosted by transformers and finally delivered to the North China Power Grid via 220kV
outlet circuits.

The implementation of the proposed project will achieve CO
2
emission reduction by replacing electricity
generated by fossil fuel fired power plants. The purpose of the proposed project is to generate zero-
emission solar power and deliver it to The North China Power Grid (NCPG).The North China Power Grid
(NCPG) is dominated by thermal power plants. In the absence of the Project, equivalent amount of annual
power output of the Project will be generated and supplied by the North China Power Grid which the
Project is connected to. This is the same with the baseline scenario of the Project. It is expected that the
Project as a renewable energy source will generate emission reductions of 14,023tCO
2
e per year and
achieve a total emission reductions of 98,161tCO
2
e by avoiding CO
2
emissions from the same amount of
electricity generation from the North China Power Grid, which is mainly composed of traditional fossil
fuel fired power plants.

The project activity will make much contribution to the local sustainable development in the following
aspects:
1. Increasing power supply and improving the local economic development.
2. Reducing its reliance on exhaustible fossil fuel based power sources and emissions of CO
2
by
supplying renewable energy to the grid.
3. Decreasing emissions of SO
2
, NOx and dust by displacing electricity from thermal power plants.
4. Creating employment opportunities directly during the construction and operation period.
5. Contributing to the optimization of power structure, the utilization of renewable energy and
benefitting the local ecologic conservation.

In the absence of the proposed project, the equivalent amount of annual power output of the project plant
will be generated and supplied by the NCPG which the proposed project is connected to. The baseline
scenario existing prior to the start of the implementation of the project activity is NCPG providing the
same electricity output as the proposed project.

The project scenario is the implementation of the proposed project. The project will utilize solar energy to
generate no GHG emissions electricity by polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules. The total installed
capacity of the Project is 10MWp with using 280W polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules, also
equipped with 16 sets of 630kW grid-connected inverters and 8 sets 1400kVA step-up transformers.

SECTION B. Application of selected approved baseline and monitoring methodology
B.1. Reference of methodology
>>
Approved small-scale methodology AMS-I.D: Grid connected renewable electricity generation, version
17.0.

Furthermore, the latest approved version of the Tool to calculate the emission factor for an electricity
system was used. (version 03.0.0)
B.2. Project activity eligibility
>>
The Clean Development Mechanism Project Activity Standard (version 01.0) states that:

81. Project participants shall indicate, from among the following below, the project type of the proposed
small-scale CDM project activity, and shall demonstrate that the project activity qualifies as this type:
(a) Type I: Renewable energy project activities with a maximum output capacity of 15MW (or an
appropriate equivalent)

(b) Type II: Energy efficiency improvement project activities that reduce energy consumption , on the
supply and/or demand side, with a maximum output of 60GWh per year (or an appropriate equivalent) in
any year of the crediting period; or

(c): Type III: Other project activities not included in Type I or Type II that result in GHG emission
reductions not exceeding 60 ktCO2e per year in any year of the crediting period.

As the project activity consists in the installation of a new solar power plant (greenfield) with nominal
capacity of 10MWp, it qualifies as Type I: Renewable energy project activities with a maximum output
capacity of 15MW.

The CDM Project Activity Standard (version 01.0) also determines that:

83. Project participants shall ensure that the proposed small-scale CDM project activity remains, for
every year during the crediting period, within the limits of the type of project activity defined in
paragraph 81 above. If during its implementation and monitoring the project activity goes beyond the
limit of its type in any year of the crediting period, the GHG emission reductions that can be claimed
during this particular year shall be capped at the maximum GHG emission reductions estimated in the
registered PDD for that year during the crediting period .

The project activity is not expected to go beyond the limit of 15MW of maximum output capacity.
Furthermore, the project activity fulfils the applicability conditions of the approved small-scale
methodology AMS-I.D (version 17.0) in the following manners:
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 7


This methodology comprises renewable energy generation units, such as photovoltaic, hydro, tidal/wave,
wind, geothermal and renewable biomass:

(a) Supplying electricity to a national or a regional grid; or

(b) Supplying electricity to an identified consumer facility via national/regional gird through a contractual
arrangement such as wheeling;

Outcome: since the project activity consists in the installation of a power plant that will supply electricity
to the North China Power Gird, this applicability condition is fulfilled.

This methodology is applicable to project activities that: (a) Install a new power plant at a site where
there was no renewable energy power plant operating prior to the implementation of the project activity
(Greenfield plant); (b) Involve a capacity addition; (c) Involve a retrofit of (an) existing plant (s); or (d)
Involve a replacement of (an) existing plant (s)

Outcome: since the project activity consists in the installation of a power plant at a site where there was
no renewable energy power plant operating prior to the implementation of the project activity (Greenfield
plant), this applicability condition is fulfilled.

B.3. Project boundary
>>
The power generated by the proposed project will be finally delivered to NCPG. As per Methodology
ASM-I.D, the spatial extent of the project boundary includes the project power plant and all power plants
connected physically to the NCPG that the proposed project is connected to. In accordance with 2012
Baseline Emission Factors for Regional Power Girds in China issued by the Chinese DNA (which
provides the delineation of the grid boundaries), the NCPG covers Beijing City, Tianjin City, Hebei
Province, Shanxi Province, Shandong Province and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The emission

B.4. Establishment and description of baseline scenario
>>
According to the approved small-scale methodology AMS-I.D (version 17.0), the baseline scenario is that
the electricity delivered to the grid by the project activity would have otherwise been generated by the
operation of grid-connected power plants and by the addition of new generation sources into the grid.

Electricity delivered to the grid by the project activity would have otherwise been generated by the
operation of power plants connected to the NCPG and by the addition of new generation sources of the
NCPG, as reflected in the combined margin (CM) calculations described in the Tool to calculate the
emission factor for an electricity system, which is detailed in the Appendix 4. The aforementioned
information can also be proved in section B.5 and B.6.

2. Documentation of barriers, as per paragraph 1 above, is not required for the positive list of
technologies and project activities types that are defined as automatically additional for project sizes up to
and including the small-scale CDM thresholds (e.g. installed capacity up to 15MW) The positive list
comprises of:
a) The following grid-connected and off-grid renewable electricity generation technologies:

i. Solar technologies (photovoltaic and solar thermal electricity generation);

ii. Off-shore wind technologies;

iii. Marine technologies (wave, tidal);

iv. Building-integrated wind turbines or household rooftop wind turbines of a size up to 100kW

As the project activity consists in the grid-connected electricity generation from a solar technology, it
shall automatically be considered additional, without further documentation of barriers.

Demonstration and assessment of prior consideration of the CDM

As per the Guidelines on the demonstration and assessment of prior consideration of the CDM (Version
04,), for project activities with a starting date on or after 02 August 2008, the project participant must
inform a Host Party DNA and the UNFCCC secretariat in writing of the commencement of the project
activity and of their intention to seek CDM status.

Project participant have informed the China DNA and the UNFCCC Secretariat of the commencement of
the project activity and of their intention in seeking the CDM status. Such notification was made within
six months of the project activity starting date and contained a brief description of the project activity and
the precise geographical location of the project plant. The notifications, using the standardized form F-
CDM-Prior Consideration, were sent for China DNA and UNFCCC Secretariat on 11/04/2013, and the
receipt of such documents has been confirmed.

Relevant detailed timeline is summarized in Table B.1 to prove that the CDM was seriously considered in
decision-making of the project.

Table B.1. Timeline of the project
Date Key Event
05/2012 EIA was completed.
02/07/2012 The Approval of EIA was obtained from Ordos City Environmental Protection
Bureau.
08/2012 The Feasibility Study Report was completed
18/09/2012 The Letter of Approval of the FSR of the project was obtained from Inner Mongolia
Autonomous Region Development and Reform Commission.
21/09/2012 The project owner held a board meeting to make the decision that the CDM revenue
should be brought to improve the financial situation of the project.
08/04/2013 The project owner informed EB in writing of the commencement of
the project activity start date and of their intention to seek CDM status
12/04/2013 The project owner informed Chinese DNA in writing of the commencement of
the project activity start date and of their intention to seek CDM status

From the above table, CDM is considered and notified within 6 months prior to the start of the project
activity. Therefore it can be concluded that the investment of the project activity is made based on serious
CDM consideration.
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 10

As the project activity utilizes solar technologies (photovoltaic) with an installed capacity below 15MW,
the project activity shall be included in the positive list of grid-connected renewable electricity generation
technologies and thus be defined as additional automatically, without further documentation of barriers.

B.6. Emission reductions
B.6.1. Explanation of methodological choices
>>
Baseline Emissions (BE
y
)

According to methodology AMS-I.D (version 17), the baseline emissions are the product of electrical
energy baseline EG
BL,y
expressed in MWh of electricity produced by the renewable generation unit
multiplied by the grid emission factor.

BEy=EG
BL,y
*EF
CO2,grid,y
(B.6.1)
Where:

BE

CDM project activity in year y (MWh)

EF
CO2,grid,y
CO
2
emission factor of the grid in year y (tCO
2
/MWh)

The Emission Factor is calculated according to method (a) provided in the methodology AMS-I.D
(version 17) as: A combined margin (CM), consisting of the combination of operating margin (OM) and
build margin (BM) according to the procedures prescribed in the Tool to calculate the Emission Factor
for an electricity system(version 03.0.0)

This PDD refers to the Operating Margin (OM) Emission Factor and the Build Margin (BM) Emission
Factor published by the Chinese DNA. For more information on the published OM and BM emission
factors, please refer to:

Calculation result of the baseline emission factor of China Regional Grid:
http://cdm.ccchina.gov.cn/WebSite/CDM/UpFile/File2975.pdf

According to the Tool to calculate the Emission Factor for an electricity system (version 03.0.0), the
CO2 emission factor for the grid is determined by calculating the combined margin emission factor (CM),
which is the result of a weighted average of two emission factors pertaining to the grid: the. Operating
margin (OM) and the build margin (BM).

Parameter SI Unit Description
EFgrid,CM,y tCO2e/MWh Combined margin CO2 emission factor for the project
electricity system in year y
EFgrid,BM,y tCO2e/MWh Build margin CO2 emission factor for the project electricity
system in year y
EFgrid,OM,y tCO2e/MWh Operating margin CO2 emission factor for the project electricity
system in year y

The parameters as above table for the North China Power Grid is calculated as follows:

Step 1. Identify the relevant electricity systems
According to the Tool to calculate the emission factor for an electricity system (Version 03.0.0), if the
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 11

DNA of the host country has published a delineation of the project electricity system and connected
electricity systems, these delineations should be used. Since Chinese DNA has published a delineation of
the project electricity system and connected electricity systems, these delineations should be applied for
the proposed project. According to the delineations, the NCPG is identified as the relevant electric power
system of the proposed project, which includes the grids of Beijing Grid, Tianjin Grid, and Shandong
Grid, Shanxi Grid, Hebei Grid and Inner Mongolia Grid. Hence, the project belongs to the Inner
Mongolia Grid, which is part of NCPG.

The North China Power Grid has imported electricity from the Northwest Power Grid (NWPG) and the
Central China Power Grid (CCPG), As per the methodology tool, referred to in 2012 Baseline Emission
Factors for regional power grids in China which is published in China DNA option (c), the simple
operation Margin Emission rate of the exporting grid, determined as described in step 4(a) was selected to
establish the CO2 emission factor for net electricity imports from the Northwest Power Grid and Central
China Power Grid.

Step 2. Choose whether to include off-grid power plants in the project electricity system (optional)

Project participants may choose between the following two options to calculate the operating margin and build
margin emission factor:

Option I: Only grid power plants are included in the calculation.
Option II: Both grid power plants and off-grid power plants are included in the calculation.

The Option I is chosen, because only grid power plants would be considered in the project electricity
system.
Step 3. Select a method to determine the operating margin (OM)
The calculation of the operating margin emission factor (
grid,OM,y
EF ) is based on one of the following
methods:
(a) Simple OM, or
(b) Simple adjusted OM, or
(c) Dispatch Data Analysis OM, or
(d) Average OM.

The Simple OM method (a) can only be applied when low operating cost/must run resources
2
constitute
less than 50% of total grid generation in average of the five most recent years. According to the data from
China Electric Power Yearbook (2007-2011), the total electric power generation of NCPG in 2010 is
1073.1TWh
3
, in which low cost/must run resources generation is 32.8TWh, accounting for only 3.06%,
which is less than 50% of total amount of power generation. The statistic data from other four years are
similar, the generations from low-cost/must run resources are all less than 1% of total generation of NCPG
in last 5 years and this percentage has not changed significantly during that period. Detailed statistic data
can be clearly seen from Table B-1.Therefore, it is reasonable to select the method (a) to calculate the OM
emission factor.






2
Low-cost/must-run resources are defined as power plants with low marginal generation costs or power plants that
are dispatched independently of the daily or seasonal load of the grid. They typically include hydro, geothermal,
wind, low-cost biomass, nuclear and solar generation. If coal is obviously used as must-run, it should also be
included in this list, i.e. excluded from the set of plants.

2007 845.7 7.21 0.85%
2008 878.5 10.345 1.18%
2009 941.8 18.2 1.93%
2010 1073.1 32.8 3.06%

The Simple OM can be calculated using either of the two following data vintages for years(s) y:
Ex ante option: If the ex ante option is chosen, the emission factor is determined once at the
validation stage, thus no monitoring and recalculation of the emissions factor during the crediting
period is required. For grid power plants, use a 3-year generation-weighted average, based on the
most recent data available at the time of submission of the CDM-PDD to the DOE for validation.
Ex post option: If the ex post option is chosen, the emission factor is determined for the year in
which the project activity displaces grid electricity, requiring the emissions factor to be updated
annually during monitoring. If the data required calculating the emission factor for year y is usually
only available later than six months after the end of year y, alternatively the emission factor of the
previous year (y-1) may be used. If the data is usually only available 18 months after the end of year
y, the emission factor of the year proceeding the previous year (y-2) may be used. The same data
vintage (y, y-1 or y-2) should be used throughout all crediting periods.

Here ex ante option is chosen, and
ple,y grid,OMsim
EF is fixed during the crediting period.

For the proposed project, the renewable crediting period, i.e. 7*3 years, is adopted.

Step 4. Calculate the operating margin emission factor according to the selected method

According to thetool to calculate the emission factor for an electricity system (Version 02.2.1), there are
three options to calculating the Simple OM Emission Factor (EF
grid,OMsimple,y
):
Option A: Based on the net electricity generation and CO2 emission factor of each power unit
5
; or
Option B: Based on total net electricity generation of all power plants serving the system and the fuel
types and total fuel consumption of the project electricity system.
Option B can only be used if:
(a) The necessary data for Option A is not available; and
(b) Only nuclear and renewable power generation are considered as low-cost/must-run power
sources and the quantity of electricity supplied to the grid by these sources is known; and
(c) Off-grid power plants are not included in the calculation (i.e., if Option I has been chosen in Step
2).

Data Source: China Electric Power Yearbook (2007:P709; 2008:P474; 2009: P572; 2010:P638; 2011. P748).
5
Power units should be considered if some of the power units at the site of the power plant are low-cost / must-run
units and some are not. Power plants can be considered if all power units at the site of the power plant belong to the
group of low-cost / must-run units or if all power units at the site of the power plant do not belong to the group of
low-cost / must-run units.
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 13

Option A should be preferred and must be used if fuel consumption data or average efficiency and fuel
type(s) used are available for each power plant / unit. However, the required data for each power plant /
unit is unavailable in China. So Option B is applied to calculate the operating margin emission factor.

Option B - Calculation based on total fuel consumption and electricity generation of the system
Under this option, the simple OM emission factor is calculated based on the net electricity supplied to the
grid by all power plants serving the system, not including low-cost/must-run power plants/units, and
based on the fuel type(s) and total fuel consumption of the project electricity system, as follows:

from China Energy Statistical Yearbook 2011. With regard to the fuel types where NCV
i,y
fluctuate in a
certain range, the floor values of the fluctuation range are used for conservatism. EF
CO2,i,y
of fossil fuel
comes from 2006 IPCC default values.

The Simple OM Emission Factor (EF
grid,OMsimple,y
) of the proposed project is calculated on the basis of the
fuel consumption data for electricity generation of NCPG, not including those of low-operating cost and
must-run power plants, such as wind power, hydropower and nuclear etc. These data are obtained from the
China Electric Power Yearbook (2009~2011, published annually) and China Energy Statistical Yearbook
(2009~2011). Based on these data, the Simple OM Emission Factor (EF
grid,OMsimple,y
) of NCPG is calculated
as 1.0021 tCO
2
e/MWh (see Annex 3 for details).

For the proposed project, the renewable crediting period, i.e. 73 years, is adopted.

Step 5. Calculate the build margin (BM) emission factor

In terms of vintage of data, project participants can choose between one of the following two options:

Option 1: For the first crediting period, calculate the build margin emission factor ex ante based on the
most recent information available on units already built for sample group m at the time of CDM-PDD
submission to the DOE for validation. For the second crediting period, the build margin emission factor should

considered as one power source.
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 14

be updated based on the most recent information available on units already built at the time of submission of
the request for renewal of the crediting period to the DOE. For the third crediting period, the build margin
emission factor calculated for the second crediting period should be used. This option does not require
monitoring the emission factor during the crediting period.

Option 2: For the first crediting period, the build margin emission factor shall be updated annually,
ex post, including those units built up to the year of registration of the project activity or, if information up to
the year of registration is not yet available, including those units built up to the latest year for which
information is available. For the second crediting period, the build margin emissions factor shall be calculated
ex ante, as described in Option 1 above. For the third crediting period, the build margin emission factor
calculated for the second crediting period should be used.

For the proposed project, Option 1 is chosen.

The sample group of power units m used to calculate the build margin consists of either
7
:

(a)

The set of five power units that have been built most recently, or
(b) The power plants capacity additions in the electricity system that comprise 20% of the
system generation (in MWh) and that have been built most recently
8
.

In NCPG, the information on the five power plants built most recently is not available. According to the
EBs guidance on DNV deviation request, the EB accepted the following deviation
9
:

Use of capacity additions during last 1~3 years for estimating the build margin emission factor
for grid electricity;
Use the efficiency level of the best technology commercially available in the provincial/regional
or national grid of China, as a conservative proxy, for each fuel type in estimating the fuel
consumption to estimate the build margin (BM).

On 7 October 2005 DNV requested guidance for projects in China. The EB guidance was given in a response letter entitled
Several projects in China (application of approved methodology AM0005), see

As we stated in step 5, the information on the five power plants built most recently is not available.
Therefore, this proposed project uses the alternative method to calculateEF
grid,BM,y
.

The project participants choose between two given options for calculating the Build Margin for the
project, one is ex-ante calculation, and the other is annual ex-post updating in the first crediting period.
For this project the first option is chosen. The Build Margin Emission Factor therefore is based ex-ante on
the most recent information available on plants already built at the time of PDD submission. The
EF
grid,BM,y
therefore is fixed for the first crediting period.

Due to the unavailability of data, some changes have been made and approved by CDM EB. That is to
calculate the incremental installed capacity and the mix of power generating techniques first, and then
calculate the weight of the incremental installed capacity created by all kinds of power generating
techniques and finally calculate emission factors by using the maximized efficiency figures of techniques.
Since the figures of the capacity of coal-fired, oil-fired and gas-fired power generation cannot be
separated from the statistics of thermal power generation, the following measures will be taken in
calculation: first, work out the proportion of CO
2
emission caused by solid, liquid or gas fuels to the total
emission based on the available data of energy balance in the recent year, second, taking the proportion as
the weight, calculate the emission factor of thermal power generation for each grid based on the emission
factor at the maximized efficiency level of techniques; finally, BM of the grid equals to the emission
factor of thermal power generation multiplied the weight of the thermal power installed capacity in the
increase of total installed capacity which is close but not exceeding 20% of existing installed capacity.

The calculation steps and formulas are as follows:

Sub-step 5.1 Calculate the proportion of CO

emission caused by solid, liquid and gas fuels in the total
emission respectively:

The data on different fuel consumptions for power generation and the net caloric values of the fuels are
obtained from the China Energy Statistical Yearbook 2011. The emission factors, oxidation factors and
effective CO2 emission factor (lower value of 95% confidence interval) of the fuels adopted are obtained
from Table 1-4 of 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories: Workbook.

Referring to the Notification on Determining Baseline Emission Factor of Chinas Grid, the build
margin emission factor (
grid,BM,y
EF ) of NCPG is calculated ex ante as 0.5940 tCO
2
e/MWh (see
Annex 3 for details).

Step 6. Calculate the combined margin emissions factor

Based on the tool to calculate the emission factor for an electricity system (Version 03.0.0) the combined
margin emissions factor grid,CM,y EF is calculated as follows:
BM
y BM, grid,
OM
y grid,OM,
y CM, grid, w EF w EF EF + = (10)

EF =Operating margin CO

emission factor in year y (tCO

/MWh)
OM w =Weighting of operating margin emissions factor (%)
BM w =Weighting of build margin emissions factor (%)

The combined margin emissions factor grid,CM,y EF should be calculated as the weighted average of the
Operating Margin emission factor (
grid,OM,y
EF ) and the Build Margin emission factor (
grid,BM,y
EF ), where
OM w =0.75 and BM w =0.25 for wind project (owing to their intermittent and non-dispatchable nature)
for the first crediting period and for subsequent crediting periods. The (
grid,OM,y
EF ) and (
grid,BM,y
EF ) are
calculated as described in Step 4 and 6.

The approved monitoring methodology AMS-I.D is used for developing the monitoring plan. Monitoring
tasks must be implemented according to the monitoring plan in order to ensure that the real, measurable
and long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions for the proposed project is monitored and
reported.

1. Description of the monitoring system

Bidirectional main meter (M1) and backup meter (M2) with accuracy no less than 0.5s will be installed at
the outlet of 35kV line of the project activity site in order to measure electricity import from and export to
grid and will be calibrated annually. If the main meter (M1) is failed, the backup meter (M2) will be
monitored to substitute the main meter (M1). Figure B-2 illustrates the connection of monitoring
equipment. The above mentioned monitoring parameters EG

simultaneously. The net electricity generation (EG
facility,y
) is calculated as the electricity delivered to the
grid (EG
export,y
) minus the electricity purchased from the grid (EG
import,y
). Once occurring the emergencies,
such as the solar PV wont generate the electricity, the project owner will import the electricity from the
power grid to use as plant self-consumption. The implementation of the monitoring system will be strictly
in line with the Power Interchange Agreement to be signed between the project company and the grid
company.

3. Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC)

QA/QC is to ensure the accuracy of data collected through measures including periodic calibration of
monitoring meters, corrective actions, and internal audits.

3.1 Data quality monitoring
QA/QC unit is responsible for comparing daily and monthly data reports with on-site original data,
crosschecking sales receipts or ETNs with data reports to ensure data consistency and accuracy before
transferring data to the data management unit. If problems occur, QA/QC unit manager will report to the
team leader immediately.

Should any reading of the main meter be inaccurate by more than the allowable error, or otherwise
functioned improperly, the monitored data shall be determined by the other meter.

3.2 Calibration
One of the responsibilities of the QA/QC unit manager is to ensure that the meters will be calibrated
according to the requirements of meter manufacturers and national regulations.

Procedure about calibration will be consistent with what is stipulated in the Power Interchange
Agreement. The metering equipment will be calibrated by an accredited calibration agency according to
the sectoral requirement. Calibration Certificates and relevant documents will be collected by the
QA/QC unit and transferred to data management unit for archiving.

If problems which can affect the quality of data occur, the QA/QC unit manager will initiate and
supervise the implementation of corrective actions. For instance, metering equipment installed shall be
inspected by an accredited inspection agency after the repair of all or part of meter caused by the failure
of one or more parts to operate in accordance with the specifications.

If any errors are detected, the project owner shall fix, recalibrate or replace the meter. If reading of the
meter is inaccurate by more than the allowable error, or otherwise functioned improperly, the electricity
supplied to the grid by the proposed project shall be determined according to the relative clauses defined
in PPA.

4. Monitoring Training

Monitoring training is critical to ensure that all members of the CDM Monitoring Team has a thorough
understanding of the monitoring procedure and are able to carry out the monitoring tasks strictly in line
with the CDM requirements. The team leader is responsible for evaluating training outcome. Only
qualified staffs can work on duty. The training will include:

Training on operation and monitoring system of the solar power plant
This is the type of training which are routinely carried out by the solar power plant itself for new
staffs.

Training on CDM basics with focus on monitoring
It will be carried out by the CDM consultancy company before the project is implemented. The
CDM monitoring manual will be used as the primary training materials. The training includes the

SECTION D. Environmental impacts
D.1. Analysis of environmental impacts
>>
In accordance with the applicable laws and regulations on environmental protection, the Environmental
Impact Assessment (EIA) report of the proposed project has been approved by Ordos City Environmental
Protection Bureau on 02/07/2012, with the approval number of E Huan Ping Zi[2012] 411. As stated in
the EIA report, the environment impacts of the proposed project on the ambient are summarized as
follows:

Waste water

The total amount of waste water and sewage from daily life and industry will be very small. Before
wastewater and sewage are discharged, they will be processed by using sedimentation pond and septic
tank to reach the class one of Chinese environmental standard, which shows no impact on the surrounding
environment.

Dust and exhaust gas

During the project construction period, dust might be caused by construction process and transportation,
loading and uploading of construction materials. By covering and watering measures, the Project will not
have significant impacts on the surroundings. Besides there are no air pollutants emission sources during
the Project operation period.

Noise
During the Project construction period, the major noise sources involve construction machinery and
transportation vehicle. In order to reduce noise imposed on construction workers and nearby residents, the
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 25

construction unit should select the construction machinery and transport vehicles in line with relevant
national standards, prefer to adopt low-noise construction and technology, and take measures to protect
construction workers. There are no noise sources during the Project operation period.
Solid waste

During the project construction period the project owner will clean construction waste in time, no
significant effect occurs on the environment. Municipal waste generated will be collected and delivered to
landfill.
Ecological impact
The site of the project was in natural wasteland and grassland, with no rare and endangered vegetation
species. After completing construction, the project owner will recover vegetation in the land temporarily
used by the project. So no significant impact occurs.
In summary via adopting measures of pollution protection and control as well as ecological recovery, the
Project will not impact surrounding environment.
No transboundary impacts will occur.
SECTION E. Local stakeholder consultation
E.1. Solicitation of comments from local stakeholders
>>
In 22/10/2012, a public survey was conducted targeted at local residents living around the project site, the
representatives from government and relevant organizations. A total of 50 questionnaires were distributed
based on the principle of representation and randomness in order that the public opinions and concerns
are reflected. All the questionnaires were returned. The background information of the interviewees is as
follows:

measures to control the pollutions generated by the project while 86% of the interviewees support fully
the project. All the respondents have the opinion that the project had the reasonable location and will
improve the local economy.

The survey also shows that the local residents are concerned about the environmental issues generated by
the project. The respondents who thought that the project would bring noise, wastewater and ecological
issues respectively account for 68%, 10% and 8%.

The results indicate that overwhelming majority of the respondents support the construction and operation
of the proposed project. For the environmental impact resulting from the proposed project, the
interviewees reached the consensus that they will support fully the project if the owner should take the
appropriate and effective measures to make the emissions of all the pollutants produced by the project in
compliance with the requirements of the relevant standards.

E.3. Report on consideration of comments received
>>
No significant comments have been received in the survey. Furthermore, the emissions of all the
pollutants produced by the proposed project will fully satisfy the requirements of the applicable laws and
UNFCCC/CCNUCC

CDM Executive Board Page 27

regulations after the proper actions are taken, as shown in the EIA report of the proposed project.
Consequently, there will be no change on design, construction, and operation of the proposed project. The
project owner will strictly obey all environmental laws and regulations and do their best to improve the
local ecological environment.
